Testimonials

for Edward Robertson

“The Directors of the first four participating departments were tasked with identifying the details of their operations in a context paper. This was followed by individual departmental sessions with the teams where a facilitator helped each group identify its own risks... 

Alberta Urban Municipalities Association

According to one participant this had a ‘cathartic effect’ and left the teams with a new positive impression that ERM would assist them in the quality of decision-making, not create extra work.”

~John McGowan, CEO Alberta Urban Municipalities Association (AUMA-AMSC), April, 2009

"This was the most helpful session of all. The true details of how to start this process.”

"The best part of the session was when: Edward explained the importance of the context paper. Never used this, but will now."

"Very useful. Clear, concise, articulate. Edward brought a practical tool for use in my work world. Thank you! Thank you!”

"This is the best session I've had during these two days. Thanks!"

"This is the level of the workshop that I came for :)"

"Thanks Edward. It's reassuring that you really understand risk management. I love the simple, minimalist approach. Cheers."

~Session participants, BC Government Risk Management Conference: How to Conduct a Risk Assessment, November, 2007

"As always, Edward is great at teaching and clarifying concepts.”

"Edward is a great presenter. This session will allow me to improve the risk assessment process within my ministry.”

"Edward is clear and concise; his examples were relevant."

"Very helpful in clarifying a structured process... well done!"

"Excellent info. Will be able to assist my clients in this subject."

~Workshop participants, BC Government Risk Management Branch: How to Conduct a Risk Assessment,
May and June, 2008

 

"...The break-out sessions were well received and because the groups were smaller, Edward’s expertise in facilitating a practical demonstration of the methodology became evident.”

Government of Saskatchewan

“We’re taking another lesson from you – that feedback is important to continued development…  The feedback we informally got from those groups so far was that those sessions were really helpful – and people would like to do more of them.  Would you be at all interested in joining us again this fall?"
~ Raelynn Douglas, Director, Performance Management Branch, Government of Saskatchewan Finance, September 2007

"I thought Edward was a good speaker, and a clear and practical thinker.  I like that... I decided to be brave enough to ask 'what exactly is a risk, and how does risk management fit within overall planning?' and I got an answer that made sense to me.

I already facilitate strategic planning meetings and the kind of risk analysis he was talking about would be a logical next step to such planning.  Anyhow, thanks for letting me know he was coming up here – it was a useful thing to attend." 
~ Violet Van Hees, Policy Analyst, Policy and Program Development, Government of Yukon, June 2007

"Edward: Thank you very much for taking the time this pm. Much appreciate your insights."
~ Pierre Marin, Executive Director (former), Treasury Board Secretariat, Government of  Canada, November 2007

"Having been singing the praises of your ERM Guideline for several months now, I have just downloaded and am reviewing the plethora of excellent documents that are on your RMB site.  Bravo to you and your team!
~ Michael Murphy, Manager, Risk and Assurance Services, Government of Ontario, Jul/Dec 2007
